Get to Know the O’side


Home of some true o’riginals, each has its own vibe.


Cruise The Strand, play on the beach, and walk the pier, then get cultured at the California Surf Museum, the Oceanside Museum of Art, or Artist Alley. Great restaurants and coffee shops, plus iconic old school O’side architecture.

Mid-District / Design District

The stretch linking Downtown and South O is an emerging destination for shopping, entertainment, and eateries like Matsu and The Miller’s Table. Don’t miss the murals on Wisconsin Ave.

South O

Known for epic craft coffee, vintage shops galore, and unique restaurants, South O has a high regard for personality and authenticity. Also home to Buccaneer Beach and the Buena Vista Lagoon nature preserve, a favorite with birders.

Inland Valley

Cooled by maritime breezes, head here for California history at Mission Luis Rey, trail running and picnicking under the trees at Guajome Regional Park, and the 3,800 acres of family farms, wineries, and stables in the South Morro Hills.
